plain jane Posted September 8, 2012 Share Posted September 8, 2012 Let's say that dh and I felt very convicted in giving all of our kids Biblical names that are all meaningful to us in one way or another. The names are all obvious that they are Biblical, especially when all heard together (which I admit isn't all that often) and it's also a family tradition that goes way back so it's not something we are willing to "break". But, after 5 names that we think go very well together ;) there is one name that we absolutely LOVE that isn't Biblical and would be a sort of "black sheep" if you would. :tongue_smilie: What would one do? I'm thinking of giving our next child (should there be a next one LOL) a Biblical first name that goes with the rest of the family but then giving them the name we love and calling that child by that name. So, let's say we love the name Tyson (not the name). We would name our next son something like Noah Tyson but we would always call him Tyson. Is this really weird? Would people just wonder why we didn't name him Tyson in the first place? How would it work for legal documents like school registration papers? Has anybody been in a similiar situation and are willing to share what they did? Are dh and I being silly and should we just go with the name we love, regardless that it really doesn't fit with the rest of the names? I have visions of this child feeling "left out" in a way since everyone else has a Biblical name, kwim? In terms of sound and flow it has the same "feel" as the rest of our names but it is obviously different, if that makes any sense. Of course, this is totally theoretical since I'm not pregnant and of course, what are the odds we'll actually end up with a boy, right? :lol: Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
